U.S. House Votes To Name Arkansas Post Office After Johnny Cash

The U.S. House of Representatives recently voted to name a post office in Arkansas after legendary singer-songwriter Johnny Cash.

The House unanimously passed H.R. 7180 to designate the post office in Kingsland, Arkansas, as the Kingsland Johnny Cash Post Office.

“The unanimous passage of this bill is a testament to the legacy Johnny Cash left behind through service to his country, his iconic music, and the deep impact he and his family have had on the Natural State,” said Republican Congressman Bruce Westerman, who sponsored the legislation.

Cash has a close emotional connection with Kingsland, where he was born in 1932.

Thirty years ago, in 1994, Johnny and his wife June, son John, and all his then-living siblings attended the Kingsland Post Office dedication.

With nearly 3,000 people in attendance, they performed the song, “Will The Circle Be Unbroken.” Cash closed by saying, “This has probably been the best day of my life. I love you, and I love Kingsland.”

One of the best-selling music artists of all time, Cash died in 2003 at the age 71.

This fall, a statue of Johnny Cash will be unveiled in the U.S. Capitol building.
